While the accomplishments of the team were forgettable, the accomplishments of their dance team weren't. The influence of the Buffalo Bombshells is still felt as many former Bombshells have only recently retired from the dance team ranks. There are also some very notable Bombshells alumni still at it. Korinne, Erin Y, and Casey are going strong for the Bandettes after having spent some time cheering on the Destroyers. And Jaclyn, who helps out with the Bandettes on gamedays after giving up dancing, also suited up as a Bombshell for a few years. Add in names like Richelle (Bandettes), Melissa (Jills), Lori (Jills), Keiyonna (Jills) as a few girls who only left the sidelines recently, and it's obvious to see the Bombshells are still going strong.
Just recently, a report came out that Buffalo is about to land an af2 franchise, a minor league for the Arena Football League. They're looking to start play in 2009 and they still have to work out a lease agreement with HSBC Arena, though.
Rochester businessman Bob Bartosiewicz will be the majority owner while formerhttp://www.buffalonews.com/sports/story/354801.html
Buffalo Bills running back Thurman Thomas and possibly former Bills quarterback
Jim Kelly will serve as minority owners.
While the team will be a minor league version of the AFL team that we once had in Buffalo, I think we can be assured of one thing. Whatever they put together as a dance team, they'll be anything but minor league.
